A quick, elegant dish with perfectly cooked salmon. The first time I made it as directed, except omitted dill (don't care for it), and added 1/4 cup water with the mushrooms to help them cook down. DH and I agreed it was the tastiest, easiest fish I've ever made! The second time, the grocery store was out of shiitake mushrooms, so I subbed portabellos. Flavor was acceptable, but they turned the sauce an unappetizing gray. So, stick to the shiitakes!
